Question G4Scintillation: Wrong number of photons 

Keywords: scintillation number photons
Forum: Processes Involving Optical Photons
Date: 07 Nov, 2002
From: Klaus Fiedler <>

Dear colleagues,

   the G4Scintillation process does not seem to produce the
number of photons expected from the energy deposit and the
scintillation yield (even with ResolutionScale = 0). At first
glance, it seems like local depositions (e.g. photo effect
without sec. e-) do not create scintillation light. Since
this problem has been known for some time (see DMXPhysicsList):
is there a bug fix planned, or does someone know a preliminary

Best, Klaus.

Setup: Geant4.4.1p01 on Redhat 7.2
